@Liv
The other top times all had a pause and restart, in fact the top run didn't even restart a paused timer but just added two separate timer counts together. I restarted my timer on accident before finishing the run due to global hotkeys being left on, hence the 2 minutes timer difference. As a mod I'd like to make a no-save category and update the existing rules to clarify timer pauses, etc. In any case I'm happy for @Toad22484 to check it out and weigh in for sure. Thanks!

Iwould like to request mod status for Children of Zodiarcs (https://www.speedrun.com/Children_of_Zodiarcs). Run has been waiting for approval for three months, only mod has not been online in four months.

Just want to chime in on the part about pausing a timer in JacksBileDuct's situation, it shouldn't matter if a timer is paused or not, you can re-time runs after the fact and real time timers generally are just for keeping pace for the runner, if you pause an external timer in your run and complete the run as normal it should be counted as a single segmented run, as you can add an accurate timer in post. Just my opinion on that matter.

Can only retime if the full run is there, though.

I think it goes without saying that if the entire run isn't on the video then it's moot anyways, don't think it's the case here but can't currently tell without the video of his run.

I did explain in my note to @JacksBileDuct why it could be a potential problem, though:

Quote

Looking at your run it appears there's missing footage (timer in first video ends at 1:47:XX, and in the second video it's 1:49:XX at the start

The time on the timer doesn't hold consistency between the footage, and there's missing footage in between the two parts.

@Aridner Ok, this looks to be fine since you have a completed run and both mods are grossly inactive.

@dowolf Mod inactive for multiple months and a pending run, seems fine.

@Twan_Jones @Habreno
Yeah, in every case including mine the full runs were recorded, its just a 3.5-4hr game so the precedent had been set to pause somewhere in the middle, save, and then finish the run in a second segment. It's easy to tell from the in game date that nothing has been skipped but I do think there should be a marathon no-save category to differentiate.

@Liv
As I said, I accidentally ran the timer, but you can also see that the in game date is consistent between when I saved in video 1 and the restart in video 2. There'd be no way to skip anything without changing that date. In any case, I do think it's important to differentiate between a save game run and a marathon run and I hope we can add that whether I become a mod or not.

Yeah I'm not trying to discount your run, just that most games I know of will typically only allow runs done in a single sitting. As in, done without breaks or done without pausing your timer. Even in the case of longer games. That's why I'd rather leave Toad to handle this particular situation as an actual runner of the game and set some ground rules, of sorts, for this particular title.

Videos done over separate periods are typically called 'segmented runs', which for the most part aren't typically tracked in most games. I'm unsure of whether or not this was an error on the prior mods part, or whether he was just accepting segmented runs.

Yeah, I definitely understand although even Toad's run is segmented, as well as the other 2 top times so it was clearly being accepted that way.

*Oops, it was just the other 2, toad just had 2 videos.

@Liv they went inactive again and I have another pending run.

Hello, all. I'm requesting the super mod BashCross on the game Wii Party ( https://www.speedrun.com/Wii_Party ) is removed or bumped down to regular mod/verifier. He was last online 3 months ago, and before that he was offline for 3 years. If he ever comes back to the community/discord, it's usually only for 1-2 days, and then he disappears again. With the amount of mods the game has now, we won't really need him anyway.

I'd like to report the super mod Shadax for the game Koumajou densetsu 2. Recently I was added as a mod to the game and there were no established rules set up on the game page. I asked several runners and got their consent regarding when timing should end and updated the rule set accordingly as that was the agreed upon by myself and the other super mod for the game Ainsel. There was a forum thread regarding the timing created by this user and he disagreed with how the timing should be despite there being a very explicit consensus among several runners (myself and the other mod included). Somehow he was given the position of super mod, removed me as a moderator, changed the rules to what he deemed was correct despite the community outnumbering him and saying otherwise, and removed a run from the user pctrax because he deemed the split incorrect. He also added an autosplitter to the game prior to a ruleset being officially set in stone which makes me believe this also plays somewhat of a role regarding the final split timing. What is happening here? I publicly asked the other super mod about the timing on twitter and was given the ok and I am being led to believe there is foul play.

And me talking with the other mod publicly on twitter prior to the incident https://media.discordapp.net/attachments/400848860119040001/530510304459620386/unknown.png?width=537&height=703

Posting alongside JustLeeBelmont, here. Requesting removing Ainsel, and Shadax as supermod, given the context above.

Hello. I would like to apply as a mod for Mobile Suit Gundam Federation vs. Zeon https://www.speedrun.com/Mobile_Suit_Gundam_Federation_vs._Zeon
My runs did not get verified, tho i asked the mod on twitter (11 days ago, run's online for 15 days (not even got a reply)). I'm a mod for other Gundam Games as well and active almost every day of the week. Would be great, if you could add me. Thanks a lot in advance!

@Liv This is regarding my most recent post, I asked the mods for their thoughts and here's what they said: https://imgur.com/a/5cO5wun .

Bash has also not been on Twitter or Twitch in multiple years, and he's not active on Discord anymore either. I don't think contacting him would get anything from him.
